AMAZING BOOT!! I've worn them everyday for 5 weeks and everyday they get more comfortable! You need to go a half size down guaranteed. Also, my feet typically overheat and start sweating, but this hasn't happened in these yet. Worth the investment!

These are great boots! They are my daily boots. They fit true to size for me. My only complaint would be the tread should be a little deeper so I would not have to have them re-soled every couple of years. Spend the extra money. They are worth every penny!

These are the best shoes that I have ever owned. The break in period is quite extensive (almost four weeks for me with every day wear) but well worth it. I have pretty wide feet, but I ordered the regular width and they do stretch out to be a perfect fit. The insole will break in over time to conform to your foot and provide you with and amazing fit. The leather is very stiff at first, but will conform to your foot. I used Sno-Seal for added protection and it was perfect for the Chicago winter months. They are not insulated, so you may need thicker socks during the winter months, but I found them to be perfect. Zappos is the best company to deal with regarding ordering and returning. I cannot recommend these shoes and Zappos highly enough.

Second pair of Iron Rangers I purchased for the man in my life. He has a brown pair he loves; these in black are no different. Worth every penny and they look better the more distressed they get from wear. He has had many other guys at work asking where he got them. I would buy them again for sure. True to size.

I don't know how else to rate these. I never even got a chance to walk in them! I am a size 14 in running shoes so I purchased these in 13 on the advice that these boot fit large. That proved to be true in terms of the length, which was spot on. The issue is that I have wide feet, and Red Wing doesn't offer wide width beyond size 12 (inexplicable why many shoe companies do this!) so I took a chance on the 13D since some reviews had mentioned that these boots are no problem for men with wide feet. Unfortunately that is not the case for all of us, since I couldn't even cram my foot into this boot at all unless I was barefoot! I understand that these particular boots require considerable time to break in, but if you can't even get your foot in to it then it's a sign to move on. If only they offered EE width for us long footed folks! Such a bummer because I love the style and the construction and materials appear to be top notch.

I purchased these shoes in hopes to have something that would last a while. The jury is still out on this, but I can tell you that the quality seems to be pretty good so far. Break in, while not brutal, was fairly extensive. I've worn them pretty much every other day for a month and the comfort level is getting there. The only problem they have is the silly laces. The laces simply won't stay tied. I will be replacing them soon with something a little longer and flat. The boots feel substantial and appear that they will wear well. The soles provided decent grip on the few snowy/icy days we had this spring. Now as the weather heats up, the plain leather seems like it will be very comfortable. This is my first pair of Red Wing boots and seems to be worth the price paid.

These are real deal work boots. They well made with top grade materials. The wool material is probably not as warm as other brands high tech insulation but with proper liners and socks these boots will be warm enough. They required a breaking in period. But are now very comfortable. I fully expect with proper care (cleaning and moisturizing) these boots will last quite a long time.

These are well made shoes, no doubt. I have no reservations except about the laces. For some inexplicable reason Redwing includes too short laces (about 46"). There is not enough to tie a knot at the top. Odd, right? I had to go to buy some 54" laces (by Chippewah) which are perfect. Plus, the new laces are round and a matching brown, not the flat black sneaker-style the shoes came with. Still - five stars for the shoes.

If you love Red Wing Shoes and love the Heritage boots, and if you have the determination and willpower to withstand two weeks worth of pain before the leather fully breaks in, then please have no doubt when you see the recommendations to order ONE size smaller on this pair of boots! I am sincerely giving my full recommendation. I absolutely love these boots for their looks, quality, comfort, and the fact that these were made in the US of A! I bought a pair first, and got my two brothers to each buy one for themselves, because these boots are just too darn stylish. Man up, get the right size, and look fly.

Awesome pair of boots. I wouldn't walk on ice every day with these soles but everything else is great from snow to mud to rain. They're tough, look great and kick ass.

I can't decide if these or my Wolverine 1000 Mile boots are my favorites. They both have great style and both garner compliments. These are probably more durable, have a more versatile sole you can wear in the rain, have rugged good looks, and are a little less dressy. On the other hand, the leather isn't as soft and pliable, took a little longer to break in, and I don't think they go well with a suit. Just get both, and be happy!

I can't get 'em to fit right. Not having a cushioned insole has been problematic for me. The 10.5 fit well but I need cushion. So I bought the 11 and just can't find an insole to fit comfortably. Still have heel slip after 3 months. Mine are definitely broken in, I have abused them at work. I'm a turf manager so I'm on grass a lot, in water, on my feet all day. These things look great and I'm a huge wedge sole fan because dirt scrapes right off but I feel I wasted my money. I just can't get comfortable in these things, they hurt my feet, and heel slip won't stop, and I'm even now using Red Wing heat moldable insoles.

I see a lot of great reviews here. Unfortunately, my experience has been less satisfactory. First off, I've owned boots from Blundstone, Cole Haan, Sorel, and others. From a comfort perspective, these boots are simply awful. Even after 8 months of break-in, they are brutally uncomfortable. In an age where Cole Haan is innovating and making boots that feel comfortable right out of the box, this just doesn't cut it. Especially at such a premium price. I live in NYC and after just one winter, they've required resoling and have scuffs all over them. Sure, the uppers look like they could last a hundred years, but what good is that if they're so uncomfortable and look so beat up so quickly? Sorry, I can't recommend these.

These are absolutely great boots! The only problem is that they come with shoelaces that just aren't long enough!

Great looking boots. The more your wear them the better they look. I am glad I took zappos review advice and went half size smaller.

Reviewer: Dennis H from Northern California
Overall: Rated:4 stars! Comfort: Rated:4 stars! Style: Rated:4 stars!

Purchased size 10 EE. My normal shoe size is 10 1/2. This 10 is a generous fit, which allows for the use of added insoles (I use Superfeet Carbon)and a substantial sock (Wigwam Merino Light Hiker). Without the insole, the arch support is too flat for my foot. And without the insole and a thinner sock, they would be loose. I rated 4 stars because of the high price for an unlined boot. That said, the construction is first class, as is the leather quality. True Goodyear welted build. Be prepared for a boot with some weight and a rigid Vibram sole. Break in is what you would expect for a boot of this type (stiff at first but not intrusive). This is rather unique model, the only Red Wing Heritage with a full Vibram lug sole that is available in wide widths. I wish Red Wing made this model in other colors! Overall, I find them to be quite comfortable (with the insole) and am definitely satisfied with the purchase.

First of all these are the best boots that I have ever owned. They may be a little pricey, but when it comes to handmade, I will gladly pay extra. Also, I am now a life long Zappos customer after they completely went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of and happy. I had ordered a size too big, which is quite common with Red Wings. I tried to make them work with bigger socks and what not, but I just was not feeling it. I let Zappos know, and before we were done with our conversation, I already had a new pair in the correct size being overnighted to my house. How rad is that? Needless to say I let everyone know about my experience, and from now on will only get my boots from Zappos. Good on you Zappos! Seriously this is the best customer service experience that I have ever had!

Great boot,great look, and well worth the price. My husband loved them. The only thing is that you have to go down 1 full size. My husband wears a 10 1/2 I ordered a 10 but they were too big, I called Zappos & they shipped my order next day delivery. Zappos was great with the return & with overnight shipping. Zappos also has excellent customer service.

If you commit to wearing these boots regularly for a few weeks, you will find it difficult to choose to wear anything else. After wearing them all day on the job it's still a shame to have to take them off at night. Buy a pair now!

These boots are hard to break in. I am a perfect fit for Allen Edmonds 9.5 E (wide). I wear these boots with smart wool socks in a 9.5 regular and they fit really well. If you live in a cold climate, get good warm socks. These boots are not warm and you will appreciate them more if your feet are not freezing. Quality is superlative.

These are awesome quality boots. I have narrow feet, and ordered one full size down from my usual size. Perfect fit, and gets even better as the boots break in.
